Paladin is an initiative by the Mozilla community at the intersection of 3D gaming, JavaScript framework and library development, and the browser. We're tied into the bits of the web that are up-and-coming, and intend to weaponize them for gaming. And where the web is missing critical gaming support, we aim to fill those gaps. Three pieces are already spinning up: a framework written in JavaScript to support 3D gaming in HTML5, a first game to help drive development of that framework, and a web joystick API for Firefox. The framework currently offers 3D modelling via CubicVR, physics by ammo.js (a cross-compilation of Bullet), loading via require.js, and sound. More subsystems are likely to be up and running by the time of this talk, where I'll review our goals, progress, and opportunities to get involved.
